Tim Mitzel: State Director

 Sports have been a big part of my life and faith. God used my passion for football to teach me about an even greater passion, knowing him!  During my junior year of football I had a major knee injury. I was told that my football career was over. This caused me to seek God and a bigger purpose for my life. I finished my senior year and our team won the ND State Championship.My coaches made a major impact on my life as an athlete on and off the field.  Coaches have such unique connection with their athletes. When you combine the influence of a coach and their faith, it’s a game changer! Teachers and other leaders as well, have a unique platform to make a difference.   Over the past decade I have had the pleasure of working with many ministries and churches. As a Cru staff one of my favorite things has been building and growing healthy teams.  In my role as Certified Life Coach,  I have helped my clients reach their goals and reignite passion in their lives.   I love the vision of FCA which has remained consistent since inception in 1954. I look forward to using my background in team building, fundraising, and life coaching to grow our North Dakota FCA. I would appreciate your prayers and support in helping us find coaches, athletes, teachers and leaders who share the FCA vision. My dream is to  see a huddle on every campus in North Dakota. Come join us in making an eternal difference in a young person’s life!
